Project Description

This piece was created to be displayed as a poster in a doctor’s office to help physicians describe the formation of a blood clot within the coronary artery and the role of platelets in this process to their patients. Additionally, the effects of the anti-platelet aggregation drug, Plavix (clopidogrel bisulfate), is included to show one of the common treatments prescribed to patients after the event of a heart attack. This part of the illustration explains how the drug works on a platelet plasma membrane receptor to help prevent future blood clots from developing.
